Municipal flag of Mengeš

According to Roger Gogala [gog02], the flag of Mengeš is vertically hoisted, vertically divided blue-white with the municipal coat of arms slightly off-set to the top and with tails at the fly (that is with an unusual trapezoidal indentation).
The flag is said to be in size of 80 cm x 240 cm with the indentation measuring 40 cm x 20 cm. The coat of arms is set so that the field above it forms a square, while the width of the upper edge of the coat of arms is 1/2 the width of the flag.

Stanič [stj05] gives the colour specifications as:

  • blue: HKS 42, RAL 5002, Pantone 287c, Folija Mactac 9839-12
  • red: HKS 15, RAL 3000, Pantone 1805c, Folija Mactac 9859-00
  • white: RAL 9003, Folija Mactac 9829-00, C345 (sic)

Gogala (op. cit.) shows the coat of arms of Mengeš as a white shield outlined in red with a blue device which seems to be made of two interwoven and attached fishing hooks, called dvojni trnek (double fishing hook?).
